Redmond’s spooky dance party “Thrill the World” will be creeping into town on Oct. 28 and dance workshops will begin this Saturday.

For those children and adults who want to get their zombie groove on, they can join instructors Teresa Osborn and Brenda Frost at the Redmond Senior Center, 8703 160th Ave. N.E.

Osborn and Frost will teach Michael Jackson’s iconic “Thriller” dance to adults and children over 12 and children over 8.

For youth 12 and over and adults, the dance will be taught in its entirety every week. There will be a $5 pre-registration charge, or $7 at the door.

Classes start at 10:30 a.m. this Saturday, plus Sept. 30, Oct. 7, Oct. 14 and Oct. 21.

For children 8 to 11, the dance will be taught in stages, and this five-part series breaks the dance down into easy-to-learn steps and builds each week. Cost is $25 for five lessons.

Classes begin at 9:30 a.m. this Saturday, plus Sept. 30, Oct. 7, Oct. 14, Oct. 21.

To register, call (425) 556-2314.

“Thrill the World” is simultaneously performed in more than 150 cities throughout 30 countries to raise money for charity. Redmond Zombies and nonprofit beneficiary Team Survivor Northwest hosts the local event, which takes place at 2 p.m. at Redmond Town Center. Registration begins at 11 a.m. and there will be costume contests and more leading up to the big dance.

Team Survivor Northwest’s mission is to provide a broad range of fitness and health education programs to enable women cancer survivors, in any stage of treatment or recovery and at any fitness level, to take an active role in their ongoing physical and emotional healing.
